Sorry about the slow response as I'm right in the
middle of a new mobile product release.
My understanding of the key differences between the
visions of the Symbian proposal and the Blinki project is Symbian's emphasis on
project elements and tools for creation of a mobile web IDE. Some of the
proposed tooling directly overlaps with the Blinki scope. But Blinki's
scope also looks beyond tooling towards application frameworks. I have not
sync'ed with Paul yet but I would gladly share PM responsibilities with him if
there is an interest to avoid overlapping project scopes and share our
respective organization's expertise in the web tool and IDE development
areas. Yet if that complicates the
objectives of DSDP and the mobile community then I support a separate Symbian
project. Blinki has exhibited slower progress
than originally envisioned mostly due to a challenging economy environment and
project personnel attrition. We have new team members that are schooling up and
will soon be participating on Blinki.

Blinki was very focused on the deployment piece of Web development, where TMW
is more of an integration project pulling together various open source
components to produce a full IDE for mobile web developers.
